About the creators
Since childhood, Helen has been captivated by words and stories. Her career journey has been in part inspired by having a mother who was a reception class teacher and a father who was a journalist. Helen worked in publishing for many years before turning author herself and has worked with many amazing authors and illustrators like Lauren Child and Corrinne Averiss. Her first picture book was Bunny’s Easter Eggs, she lives and work in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds and when she is not at her desk she loves to explore the footpaths and towpaths close to her home.
